D.I.Y Accessory Storage

Problem:  I love anything that makes me feel glamourous and that is the main reason why my room has become cluttered with many accessories and things that I love.

Solution: Customized “Jewelry & Accessory Box”

Image

1. I purchased the Alex Drawer unit with 9 drawers at Ikea http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50192822/

Love the storage space but all white…. super boring

Image

Supplies: Decorative paper, Mod Podge (2 bottles),  scissors, Xacto knife (not necessary if u prefer using scissors, & a pencil.

** The Paper Store has AMAZING paper

The decorative paper I used was 17″ x 27″ and I purchased 7 sheets.

Image

2. Outline the shape of the drawers so you can have a precise cut. Paint Mod Podge on the surface before you apply your decorative paper. Once the decorative paper is placed on the surface paint more Mod Podge on top- this step is very important to seal the decorative paper in place.

3. Once I finished applying the decorative paper to the Ikea Alex unit, I put the unit together. See below for end result.

* I saved the border and trim for last.

Downtown

Saturday was absolutely gorgeous, I spent the day downtown on the prowl for inspiration and creativity. I finally…. took the time to visit the Topshop store in LA, personally I prefer the Topshop in NYC (Broadway) & London (Oxford St). The LA store was cute but I just found the energy a little weak compared to NYC & London.
